Warning over staff cuts

12th August 2011

The Royal College of Nursing has said that cuts to staffing and training budgets are a “false economy” and “short sighted” after new figures revealed the rising cost of lawsuits against the NHS.

The warning come as the NHS Litigation Authority’s annual report showed that the number of clinical negligence claims brought against the health service rose by 32% in 2010-11, to 8,655. The NHS paid out £863m to claimants last year, which was up from £787m the year before.
